WW2 Cased & Named Bronze Star Medal, 3rd Infantry Division (POW at Anzio, 1944)
- Type: Slot Brooch
An original complete and named WW2 cased Bronze Star medal. The medal comes in its original case of issue together with its ribbon bar and lapel pin. The medal comes with a slot brooch mechanism and its original ribbon, indicating production during WW2. The Bronze Star is name engraved with "James E. Hines". Hines was a private with the 7th Infantry Regiment of the 3rd Infantry Division. Hines got captured at Anzio on 30th of January 1944 (see the last two photos for info on him) Great interesting set in great condition! No repairs, no damage.
Would make an interesting research project to find out more about Hines!
